Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin: The AMVOX2 DBS Transponder

.
.
.
.
The AMVOX2 DBS Transponder is the most recent addition to the exclusive AMVOX range of timepieces created jointly by Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin – and the most vivid example yet of the powerful synergy between the two companies. A dramatic fusion of high-tech engineering skills and the finest watchmaking expertise, this revolutionary timepiece features an integrated transponder circuit that allows the owner to unlock or lock their Aston Martin DBS simply by pressing the sapphire crystal.
.
.
.
Like the AMVOX2 Chronograph DBS, this elegant new timepiece has no push buttons: the vertical trigger system of mechanical levers patented by Jaeger-LeCoultre allows the chronograph to be started, stopped and reset by pressing the sapphire crystal. Augmenting these functions in the AMVOX2 DBS Transponder is a miniaturised transmitter system that controls access to the owner’s DBS. As the driver nears the car, they simply press the ‘OPEN’ position on the watch glass (between 8 and 9 o’clock) and the door-opening system is activated.
Pressing the ‘CLOSE’ position (between 3 and 4 o’clock) locks the car again.
The unique connection between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin is evident elsewhere on the watch, too. The exquisitely detailed dial features a suspended metallic grey DBS logo, there is a subtle Aston Martin emblem on the movement operating indicator, and the ruthenium grey bridges, satin finish and black background evoke the look of the DBS’s instrument panel. The outer dial ring, meanwhile, has an opening that allows a tantalising glimpse of the chronograph functions – just as the slender wheel rims of the DBS expose the mighty brake calipers behind.
.
.
.
.
Created specially for Aston Martin DBS owners, the AMVOX2 DBS Transponder is the first mechanical timepiece to operate not only as a chronograph but also as the key to a luxury sports car. An engineering masterpiece in miniature, its beauty and functionality stand as testament to the inspiration and expertise of the partnership that created it.

Tag Heuer Monaco V4 Limited Edition Watch. ($80,000)

tag-heuer-monaco-v4-limited-edition-watch(Tag Heuer Monaco V4 Limited Edition Watch)

.

Limited edition of just 150 watches the Monaco V4. It is the only Tag Heuer watch made from platinum (170 grams of it), fact that gives to it its modern style.

.

The Monaco V4 changes inspired from car engines. Like mechanical watches, it engines has the same concepts: transmission, friction, torque and power. But, the Tag Heuer First uses a 4.25-gram platinum ingot which acts as a sort of cylinder, in a linear movement. Then, changes the transmission of power from the traditional wheels to a drive-belt transmission: 13 belts with a gauge measure of 0.5 x 0.45mm.

.
The Monaco V4 uses 2.2mm diameter bearings with 0.25mm balls rotating inside, rather than synthetic rubies to reduce friction acting as energy generators with bridges made of transparent sapphire.

.
The Monaco V4 wristwatch was presented at Baselworld in 2004. Then, in 2007, a production ready piece was shown. 2009 was the year in which the Monaco V4 watch version was finally presented.

.

NEW Breitling Cosmonaute Limited Edition

(NEW Breitling Cosmonaute Limited Edition)
.
.
.

1962. The space race was well under way. Already a supplier to civilian and military aviation, Breitling naturally took a keen interest in this new human adventure. Based on the Navitimer chronograph, the brand’s technicians developed the Cosmonaute, a space-going version of this instrument indicating the daily 24 hours in a single sweep of the dial. Given the extremely relative nature of day and night in space, this configuration prevents possible confusion between midday and midnight. On May 24th 1962, the astronaut Scott Carpenter tested this instrument under real-life conditions during his orbital flight aboard the Aurora 7 capsule.
.
.
.
For its 125th anniversary, Breitling has chosen to issue a limited series of the model that became the first wrist chronograph to experience space travel. Only 1,000 of these Cosmonaute watches will be produced, all equipped for the occasion with an original version of the intriguing 24-hour dial. Further accentuating its distinctive character and in tribute to a modern design icon from the 1960s, the Cosmonaute Limited Edition is fitted exclusively with the rigid perforated Air Racer bracelet.

The new 500 Fathoms surfaces in the Old Port of Cannes.

(The new 500 Fathoms surfaces)

Blancpain presents the “1big sister” of its famous Fifty Fathoms watch: the brand-new 500 Fathoms. More high-performance and high-tech than ever, the brand’s latest diver’s watch displays an uncompromisingly sporting design. Water-resistant to 1000 metres, it is equipped with a helium decompression valve that is vital when diving in a closed environment. The ultra-virile 500 Fathoms is fi tted with a 48 mm-diameter titanium case – an unusual size for Blancpain.

Presented as the ultimate sports watch, the 500 Fathoms is making a striking entrance into the collection of Blancpain diver’s watches. Endowed with a new face, a new size and new performances, the 500 Fathoms is water-resistant to 1000 metres. It features a brushed titanium case measuring 48 mm in diameter, equipped with a crown guard. Placed inside the case at 10 o’clock, an automatic decompression valve guarantees the security and the reliability of the watch, without requiring any handling on the part of the wearer.

To enhance readability, Blancpain has designed large phosphorescent Arabic numerals that are hollowed into the sunray-brushed metal appliques. The luminescent coating on the hour-markers, bezel markings and hands, along with the red tip of the sweep seconds hand, ensure optimal readability in all circumstances. The luminescent base of the black dial reveals its fluorescence only in the dark, while the date appears in white against a black background at 4 o’clock. The unidirectional ratcheted bezel facilitates handling and avoids any involuntary extension of the dive time. Crafted in titanium and sapphire crystal, it features a gentle cambered relief that reduces the risk of impacts.

(The new 500 Fathoms surfaces)

The 500 Fathoms is powered by the self-winding Calibre 1315, specifically designed to equip sports watches. It incorporates balance with micrometric regulating screws, which helps to prevent any jarring from disturbing the smooth running of the watch. Three series coupled barrels guarantee constant energy and a five-day power reserve. The calendar mechanism enables the user to make fast date adjustments in either direction even at midnight, without any risk of damaging the mechanism. Another noteworthy feature of the 500 Fathoms is its sapphire crystal allowing one to admire its self-winding movement, as well as its engraved oscillating weight shaped like a boat propeller, without compromising either water resistance or safety.
The new 500 Fathoms is equipped with a sturdy, sporty and watertight strap in rubber-lined black sail canvas. A brand-new triple-blade folding clasp secured with two pushers on either sides sets the finishing touch, while an additional rubber strap and the implement required to fit it complete the set which comes in an ultra-rugged presentation box designed to withstand extreme conditions. The performances and the reliability of the 500 Fathoms represent a major new technical accomplishment bearing the unmistakable signature of Blancpain, which is thereby eloquently reaffirming the expertise of its Manufacture in the demanding world of diver’s watches.

Henry Graves’ Platinum Minute-Repeater – Patek Philippe – wristwatch.

(Platinum Minute-Repeater – Patek Philippe)
.
.

Henry Graves was an American banker descended from John Graves of Concord, Massachusetts born in March 11, 1868 in Orange (New Jersey) and died March 21, 1953 in New York City. He married Florence Isabel Preston on January 21, 1896.

Born into a prominent banking family, Mr. Graves was a very passionate watch collector; Graves was a patron of Patek Philippe, competing with James Ward Packard, the famed automobile manufacturer, for ownership of the most complicated watch in the world. In 1927, Packard commissioned the world’s most complicated watch but not to be outdone, Henry Graves surpassed his rival in 1933 to become the owner of the most complicated watch ever made, spending 60,000 SF, nearly five times the price paid by Mr. Packard. It took over three years, and the most advanced horological technique, to engineer this truly one-of-a-kind timepiece; only one watch was ever built. Called “the Supercomplication”, this pocket watch was held in the Museum of Time near Chicago, IL for years until it was sold for a record-breaking $11,002,500 to a secretive anonymous bidder at a Sotheby’s auction held in New York City on December 2, 1999. The watch currently resides in the Patek Phillippe Museum in Geneva, Switzerland, and is the most expensive single piece on display.

One of the timepieces commissioned by Henry Graves Jr is the Patek Philippe Platinum Minute-Repeater that was made for Henry Graves, Jr. in 1927 and sold on August 16, 1928. It has been kept in private collection for over 50 years.

The 1927 platinum minute repeater is the second-most important Graves wristwatch ever offered at auction, following the Graves tortoise-shaped minute-repeater sold in an Antiquorum sale in 1989. This magnificent timepiece is a very fine and extremely rare cushion-shaped, minute-repeating, platinum wristwatch. Which estimated price was between $250,000–$ 350,000.

Henry Graves’ wristwatch was of a great significance during the sale. It was the Patek Philippe Henry Graves’ unique platinum minute repeater sold for an impressive $630,000.

Blancpain regularly celebrates its historical ties with the maritime world. In 2007, Blancpain naturally chose the Cannes International Boat Show to launch its “new wave” Fifty Fathoms watch. This year, to mark its fifth participation in the prestigious yachting event, Blancpain is announcing the launch of its brand-new 500 Fathoms and presenting a special edition of this model, issued in a limited series of 50.


The resolutely sporting 500 Fathoms is making a noteworthy entrance into the collection of Blancpain diver’s watches. Endowed with a new face, new dimensions and new performances, the 500 Fathoms may in some ways be considered the “big sister” (size-wise) of the famous Fifty Fathoms*. Measuring an impressive 48 mm in diameter, the new 500 Fathoms is water-resistant to 1000 metres. An automatic decompression valve, placed inside the brushed titanium case, guarantees the security and reliability of the watch without requiring any handling on the part of the wearer.

To enhance legibility, Blancpain has designed large phosphorescent Arabic numerals engraved into sunbrushed metal appliques. The luminescent coating applied to the hour-markers, bezel markings and hands, as well as the red tip of the central seconds hand, ensures ideally convenient read-off in all circumstances. The black luminescent base of the dial reveals its fluorescence only in the dark. The oneway rotating bezel made from titanium and scratch-proof sapphire crystal is notched to facilitate handling and slightly cambered to reduce the risk of impacts.

The sapphire crystal back enables one to admire the entirely hand-decorated self-winding Calibre 1315 with its propeller-shaped oscillating weight. The 500 Fathoms Cannes 2009 model comes fitted with a black rubber-lined sail canvas strap, while an additional rubber strap and a dedicated tool to secure it lend the finishing touch to this set delivered in an ultra-sturdy watertight presentation box designed to withstand extreme conditions.

*Born in 1953 from Blancpain’s encounter with two French naval officers – Captain Robert “Bob” Maloubier and Lieutenant Claude Riffaud, who were entrusted by the French Ministry of Defence with creating an elite “Combat Divers” unit – the Fifty Fathoms proved its worth by displaying an ability to withstand the extreme conditions characteristic of underwater military operations. Named after the water resistance of the original model, guaranteed to a depth of 50 fathoms (91.45 metres), this mechanical masterpiece soon earned a reputation for reliability and sturdiness, thereby asserting itself as the archetypal modern diver’s watch.

Juan Martín Del Potro Dethrones Roger Federer to Win US Open Men’s Title.

US OPEN DelPotro

2009 US Open Men’s Singles Champion Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG)[6] .

Juan Martin del Potro dethroned Federer as the US Open champion, ending his five-year reign as the men’s best worldwide tennis player earning his first major title in a come-from-behind 3-6, 7-6 (5), 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-2 victory.

It was the first five set men’s final since 1999, when Andre Agassi defeated Todd Martin and one of the biggest US Open matches. It was Del Potro’s first career victory over Federer in seven matches. The new champion, with just 20 years old, became the second Argentine in history to win the US Open, joining Guillermo Vilas, who won in 1977.

He dropped onto his back, looking like a towering snow angel in search of the first fall signs of winter flurries and later gave a tearful thanks to his family and friends back in Tandil.

“My dream is done. It’s over,” said Del Potro, who became the first Argentine male to win the title since Guillermo Vilas in 1977. “I will go home with a trophy, and it’s the best sensation ever in my life.

Omega and Sports: Its conexion to the Swimming, Polo and Athletics World.

Omega was the first company to be entrusted with the official timekeeping of all disciplines at the Los Angeles Games in 1932 using chronographs and stop-watches developed by its subsidiary Lémania. Omega’s association with the Olympic Games led to well over half a century of pioneering developments in the field of sports timekeeping.

Omega and the Swimming World

The association between Omega and swimming dates back to 1932 when the brand was first entrusted with the official timekeeping of all disciplines at the Olympic Games including swimming.

The watchmaker symbolized by the Greek letter for perfection has had a decades-long partnership with the swimming world. In addition to its role as official FINA partner, it is also the Official Timekeeper of LEN (European Aquatics) and has served in many internationally renowned swimming competitions, among them the Pan Pacific Championships and, of course, the Olympic Games. This relationship has led to a long list of innovations in the field including the world’s first semi-automatic swimming timer, the Swim Eight-O-Matic Timer, first used at the Olympic Games in Melbourne in 1956, and the famous “touch pads” placed at each end of the pool for timekeeping at swimming events, first used at the Pan-American games in Winnipeg in 1967.

Omega and Golf

Omega is one of the few watch brands in the world with a history and tradition in golf. Founded in 1848, 12 years before the first-ever British Open took place at Prestwick golf course near Glasgow, Omega’s involvement in international golf today includes tour and tournament sponsorship as well as official timekeeping.

In 2007 Omega became the title sponsor of the World Cup of Golf. Founded in 1953, the World Cup is the oldest and most prestigious global golf team event, which invites two-man teams from 28 leading golfing nations to compete for the title. Under Omega’s sponsorship, the World Cup will be played at Mission Hills in China, the world’s largest golf complex, until at least 2018.

In order to commemorate its connection to the world of golf, Omega introduced a unique model to its popular and distinctive Constellation watch line. The OMEGA Constellation Double Eagle blends technical innovation with design excellence in a wristwatch which is at once elegant and sporty.

Omega and Athletics

OMEGA has always been committed to athletics timing and continuously develops its timing technology. Thanks to OMEGAtiming, Lausanne’s Athletissima meet on July 6, 1994 marked a milestone in sports history: at exactly 8:20pm, Omega timed the 1/100 second which made the American Leroy Burrell the new king of the 100 metres, in just 9.85 seconds! Precision to 1/100 second – how crucial timekeeping had become!

The brand is particularly proud to be associated with the Golden League Meetings in Berlin, Brussels, Monaco, Oslo, Paris, Rome and Zurich – where Omega is the official timekeeper.
